There are frame appendages on the rear meant to support the rear fender. Struts!

These most likely will need to be removed in order to allow mounting the self supporting rear fender, which you will need to accommodate the wider tire.

My .02? If its a stock H-D FXR? shoehorn a 150mm under the rear fender and call it good. Chopping up H-D's BEST frame (thats no longer in production) isn' something to be taken lightly. Still want to go for it? Even the aftermarket frames of days gone by had you do some weird shit in order to fit a much larger tire. Like shaving down the transmission case's pivot shaft boss so you can shift the output shaft and sprocket to the left to clear a larger tire. Going to chain drive is also an option for a larger tire, but modding the frame rails and struts is not for the average joe. Plan your work and work your plan. TK.

You might check with Gypsy he used an aluminum Swingarm on the 2 FXR's he built and I think they both had 180 tyres on them

I have a Kenny Boyce frame with a 180, 9" rear fender, .750 offset sprocket after shimming the rear non dished sprocket and the wheel looks to be 6.5". Sprockets lines up good but to get a 200 in there Im going to have to shift engine and tranny and probably widen or offset in some way the swing arm to get it all in there and centered perfect.
With that said, I honestly dont know the difference between the KB frame and a stock FXR frame as far the width goes.

and dished rear sprocket- would that allow 200 without moving the engine- trany?.

I wish, but I had to shim the sprocket over already to get the chain off the 180 then I had to offset the front sprocket after doing that. I plan to buy a dished sprocket so I can remove the shims , which will allow the wheel to be centered but to do that I will have to move the engine and tranny over about a .5 to 1".

I saw a Iron Horse bike that is based off the same frame and it runs a 180 with a belt but the swing arm is wider than mine and the frame may be a bit wider, but didnt have a tape on me that day to measure. Did take a bunch of pictures though. I think they said the IH was a 99 but dont remember the name of the model.
